About Lancaster

Lancaster County is located in the beautiful, verdant Susquehanna Valley. Locals and visitors enjoy exploring the revitalized City of Lancaster, the rural Amish countryside and quaint towns including Lititz, designated one of America’s coolest small towns. The City of Lancaster provides a unique blend of historic charm and urban vitality. Founded in 1730, the city was the capital of our nation for one day on September 27, 1777 and the state capital of Pennsylvania from 1799-1812. Lancaster’s heritage is evidenced by nationally recognized architecture and historic districts. The city boasts wonderful restaurants, breweries, museums and shops. The vibrant arts community includes an art school, galleries, music and theatre venues. At the heart of the city is Lancaster Central Market, the oldest continually operating market in the country. Central Market and the county’s rich agricultural history have energized the farm-to-table movement featured by many fine dining establishments, coffee shops and food trucks. First Friday celebrations, spring mud sales, autumn harvests and numerous festivals make Lancaster a special destination throughout the year.
